    Up for sale/bidding on ebay is my Army Recon 21 Speed FOLDABLE Mountain Bike (26")

    Army Recon 21-Speed Foldable Mountain Bike (26") - eBay (item 220469423121 end time Aug-30-09 18:53:23 PDT)


    The AD

    As tough as this bike is, it's so lightweight that at 45 lbs. even kids can carry it easily. Even the most discerning biking enthusiasts can't argue with the convenience and quality of the Army Recon. This bike is ideal for bikers who dont have to hassell with a bike rack as it fits easily in car trunk. I drive a BMW 325 sedan and its trunk is fairly compact. This bike fits in without any hassel. See the picture of the folded bike in the car trunk.

    I bought this bike this year from Amazon for $249. Have only used it a couple of times. Because of an injury i cant use it anymore so i am selling it. You can find the retail listing for this bike at Amazon at the following link:

    Amazon.com: Folding Mountain Bike: Everything Else

    VIDEO:

    I have made a video of the bike for you so you can see the minutest of details.

    The bike comes with a FREE pump for your convenience. A $40 value absolutely FREE. See picture of the pump.

    The bike is perfect condition not even a single scratch. I am selling it for almost half the retail price so it is absolute steel. Where can you find a foldable bike for this price.

    "As tough as this bike is, it's so lightweight that at 45 lbs. even kids can carry it easily. Even the most discerning biking enthusiasts can't argue with the convenience and quality of the Army Recon."

    I get paid to write ad copy, and even I couldn't bring myself to write something so obviously far-fetched.

    Must not be doing too well as a advertising man. It's advertising 101.

    1. "Catch the attention of the reader.
    2. "Highlight your product's USP (unique selling propostion) which in this case is the bike's foldable feature and convenience.

    Seems to be working on eBay.

    Might i suggest a change in profession perhaps. Just kiddin mate. You do your thing and i will do mine.

    Cheers!!!!

    It's my job to promote cycling, not stretch the truth about a two-wheeled boat anchor. I could not, in good conscience, convince someone that your Army Recon is a viable excuse for a bicycle.

    By the way, you listed the frame size as 26". My guess would be 17".

    Your guess is just that "your guess". I would suggest you avoid making your so called guesses. It undermines your ability as a cycling promoter.

    The bike is a 26".

    No, I'm pretty sure your frame is somewhere between a 17" and 19". I have never seen a 26" frame.
